SAVORY SUNDAYS- VEGETABLE LENTIL WILD RICE SOUP

Hey folks,

Welcome to Savory Sunday! I hope everyone had a great weekend.  My mom was in town this weekend and we had a really nice time.  She even went to brunch at the vegan spot Real Food Daily with me and my friend HH today and she enjoyed it!!  With the exception of today, the weather in LA has been less than stellar the last couple of days, very cold and rainy so it's great soup weather.  This hearty offering I found from vegweb seems it would soothe the soul.  Check it out!
